    whats a good price for this guy? the recent lee's price guide says a sealed set with him and prime is only worth 20, however no one seems to have one, and the one on ebay is 44.44 plus 12 for shipping....

    i wanna have every version of this mold someday, including the crystal edition that i havent even seen yet....and i expect to spend some money on crystal magnus and sentinel maximus, but that price just seems to high for this one....

    I don't trust that guide at all. I search completed listings on eBay to get a market feel.

    I wonder what the MSRP was.

    good call...there was one sealed that went for 66 plus 18 shipping....which means loose is usually half...so thats 33, plus some shipping...and then since its only one of the 2 toys, it should be less, id say no more then 15-20 plus shipping....

    I wish, but that's crazy. I've never seen a sealed set go for less than $60. I'd like a set, but since I have the molds 2 and 3 times already, I'm not really feeling like paying more than $40.

    you can just get it and Junkion Exchange the stuff you don't need. :) 

    I'm pretty sure you can get $15 + shipping for an Armada Prime.

    Ebay:
    That price you saw for the lone one on eBay is a little high, then again you don't see the set let alone Overload floating around for sale/auction that often. If I weren't in the middle of moving and saving for Botcon I would've pulled the trigger on that eBay listing last night...but I too will have to wait. Still holding out for the complete set as I'm a sucker for anything Optimus Prime.

    I've got Overload, Superlink Ultra Magnus, Energon Ultra Magnus and Sentinel Maximus, so all I need to complete the mold collection is this CostCo version, the red translucent Superlink version and the lucky draw turqoise crystal version. Yeah, I know I'm dreaming on that last one...

    Ebay:
    Upon first inspection I thought the colors were slightly different, but once I got SL Ultra Magnus in my hands and compared him against Armada Overload I could tell that the differences weren't so slight.

    The differences are noticeable enough that if you stand them by each other each one stands out. Nothing strikingly different, but enough to warrant the purchase.
